ICT4Democracy in East Africa at a Glance: June 2011 – July 2012

Date posted: September 18, 2012

The ICT4Democracy in East Africa network is premised on the recognition that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) enhances communication and the right to freedom of expression, as well as the right to seek, receive and impart information. In this respect, ICT has the potential to increase citizens’ participation in decision-making processes, thus strengthening democratisation.

In this publication, we give you a peek into the initiative’s activities, projects progress and the network partners’ experiences – among them CIPESA – during the last half of 2011 and the first half of 2012 in leveraging on ICTs to hold leaders accountable to citizens, as well as to fight corruption, monitor service delivery, and contribute to building a democratic culture in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.
